About The Author

Bryan Young Weight

Hello. I’m Bryan Weight, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During my teenage years I wanted to find out if God was real and if Jesus was His divine Son. I also wanted to know if the Church I was attending with my parents was special or just another denomination.

After applying myself to the tried and true formula of sincere desire, study, pondering and prayer; I got an answer. The answer came in the form of a feeling that is beyond my capacity to express. Although I did not see an angel or receive an external manifestation, something inside me had indeed changed. I was no longer a simple believer, for my witness from God expanded beyond belief. My spirit had tasted of His goodness in a revelation through the Holy Ghost. I could honestly say that Jesus Christ was my personal Redeemer, and yet the feeling was deeper than that. I came to know and understand that Jesus was the Savior of the world.

The miracle of my spiritual conversion is not limited to a testimony of Jesus. In the same way that I know Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, and Son of the Living God; I also testify that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the kingdom of God on earth. My testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ includes the prophet Joseph Smith. In addition, I witness there are living prophets and apostles on earth today. Moreover, I received an affirmation that The Bible and The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ are Holy Scriptures from God.

When I arrived at the age of nineteen years, I volunteered to serve a fulltime two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ without financial assistance from anyone other than my immediate family. My personal monetary contribution in that undertaking was significant. When embarking on the Lord’s errand, volunteers serve anywhere in the world requested by revelation through living prophets and apostles. My mission was in the Eastern States of the USA, which was later renamed the New York, New York City Mission. While there and in the surrounding states, I studied and taught the gospel of Jesus Christ. Very few souls taught were immersed in the waters of baptism. For those that did, it was my privilege to bestow the gift of the Holy Ghost upon them by the laying on of hands through the power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.

Two and one-half years after my mission release, the sweetheart of my dreams came into my life and together we were married in a temple of our God. Marriages solemnized in LDS temples stretch beyond “till death do you part” and “as long as you both shall live.” Wedding vows performed by the proper priesthood authority in LDS temples endure past death and survive eternally. Together my wife and I were blessed with four children.

My wife and I both graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU). My degree was in engineering and my first job was with a large firm that designed and built power plants. When public opinion turned against nuclear power in the 1980s, I was laid off, which necessitated a career change.

Being unemployed we decided to move to the Northwest. After landing in the Seattle, WA, USA metro area, unemployment hung on for eight long, stressful months. Eventually, I was hired by a small engineering firm that specialized in home inspections and forensic engineering services. Forensics turned out to be very much to my liking. A year and a half later we moved to the Portland, OR, USA metro area where I started my own business.

Starting a new business from scratch in an unknown city turned out to be more challenging than unemployment. Having no previous marketing experience the learning curve was very steep, and the threat of ruin was constant. It took about three years to get established in this line of work which continued eighteen years. The last seven years involved construction defects forensic work with expert witness appearances in court, arbitration cases, and mediation hearings. Near the end of our time in Oregon, the market was flooded with construction defect “experts” and the insurance industry introduced strategies to reduce the need for experts. Market conditions changed enough to return to my roots in nuclear power where I stayed until retirement.

The Messianic prophesies on Jesus Christ have been a personal favorite and frequent area of study since 1980. As an expert witness in construction defect claims and legal disputes it was natural to apply my forensic engineering skills while engaged in scripture study. Having read the Old and New Testaments and additional scripture multiple times, I discovered many correlating prophetic references to Jesus Christ; “for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Rev. 19:10). I have also read and studied the entire Qur'an. The unique personal insights acquired and tracked over decades culminated in writing Jesus The Messiah, volumes I, II, and III.
